Living & Working Green

Mount Holyoke College is committed to reducing the environmental footprint of campus operations and student life on campus. While all community members play a role in this effort, students who call MHC home for much of the year have a particularly significant opportunity to green Mount Holyoke.

The College is actively working to reduce our footprint in a number of areas including: energy and climate change, waste reduction and recycling, green building, responsible land management, water conservation, and hazardous materials management. You can find more about these efforts using the navigation on the left.
